Scheeser Buckley Mayfield provided mechanical and electrical engineering services for a new 54,000 sq. ft. learning center. The building included office space, lobby, classrooms, assembly area and kitchen area. The HVAC system has a geothermal system, including a ground source heat pump system designed to heat and cool the building. High efficiency extended range ceiling mounted heat pumps were utilized to condition space individually. Two 100% outside air air handling units with heat recovery wheel were designed to provide ventilation. The project requires LEED Silver status. The electrical system is a utility source with emergency generator for backup power. Electrical includes addressable fire alarm system, telecommunications, and complies with OSFC requirements. The electrical design included a new 480/277V, 3 phase, 4 wire utility service via padmount transformer. 480V was used for distribution throughout the facility and for large mechanical loads. The 480V power was stepped down to 120/208V via use of dry type transformers. The 120/208V was used to supply all classroom power requirements.

Akron Zoo - Komodo Kingdom

Akron Zoo - Komodo Kingdom
Education Center


Scheeser Buckley Mayfield LLC designed the HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection systems for a new education building. This building has several different areas including animal exhibits, a full service kitchen, and conference areas. Also, this building was designed and constructed to be a LEED Certified green building via several design elements. One major element is the HVAC system, which is a ground source heat pump system. Other ‘green’ elements will include displacement ventilation and waterless urinals. This building is currently occupied was LEED Certified. A part of this new 35,000 square-foot building was the Komodo Kingdom education center at the Akron Zoo. Total construction costs were approximately $9.3 million, and the building was designed and constructed with many environmentally conscious materials and practices.

Armed Forces Recruiting Center

ArmedForcesArmed Forces Recruiting Center
Whitehall, Ohio – Louisville District - 2010


The Whitehall Armed Forces Reserve Center is a new building of approximately 150,272 square feet. The building program includes offices, training facilities, readiness rooms, unit storage facilities, an assembly hall and a kitchen. The project also includes recruiting offices, medical examination rooms and a weapons simulator room. Approximately 900 people will work and train in this facility. Additionally the project consists of a 5,067 square foot Vehicle Maintenance Shop, and an additional 6,549 square foot Storage Building. Scheeser Buckley Mayfield was responsible for the MEPT and Civil design for the facility. The project delivery method was design build with the A/E team participating in the project solicitation response as well as the design documentation. The project was designed to comply with federal energy conservation measures roughly equivalent to a LEED Silver energy performance. The building envelope was modeled by Scheeser Buckley Mayfield to assist in accomplishing compliance with ASHRAE 90.1-2004

Service for the three building complex was obtained from a new service drop designed to connect to the Bases’ 13.2 KV overhead distribution system. The new service drop feeds a 2500 KVA, 13.2KV to 480/277V, 3 phase, and liquid-filled, outdoor padmount transformer. This transformer supplies the Training Building’s 3000A, 480/277V Main Switchboard. Separate metered feeds were run from the Main Switchboard for electric service to Vehicle Maintenance Shop and Storage Building. The Training Building’s electrical distribution system was designed so that mechanical system equipment is on separate electrical feeds segregating it from the electrical system serving office areas. 208/120V power for the office areas are served by K13 rated step down transformers. The 208/120V distribution systems serving the office areas were designed with a 200% neutral throughout. Building lighting generally consisted of the 2’x 4’ recessed fluorescent fixtures in areas with ceilings and 1’x 4’ surface industrial fluorescent fixtures in utility areas with no ceilings. Offices and open office areas were generally lit with recessed direct/indirect lighting fixtures. Restrooms and general use spaces were lit with recessed fixtures having acrylic prismatic lenses. Lighting utilized T8 lamps, and electronic ballasts having less than 10% THD. The lighting in open office areas is controlled via a programmable lighting control system. Corridor lighting and lighting in offices having more than one occupant is controlled via ceiling mounted occupancy sensors. Lighting for individual offices is controlled via a wall mounted occupancy sensor. The design included the installation of power and telecommunication feeds for large amounts of modular office furniture. A combination analog addressable fire alarm and mass notification was designed for the Training Building and the Vehicle Maintenance Shop. A tie in with the Base’s fire alarm and mass notification was also included. The design provided a building card access/security system which ties in and interfaces with the Bases’ existing security system as well as a Cable TV distribution system. The project included the design of the telecommunication system for the three buildings. The designed covered the design of telecommunications rooms, a new telecommunications main distribution frame, wiring, and jacks.

The project included secured car and truck parking / service lots that utilized extra strength 12” high concrete curbs, reinforced concrete curbing and sidewalks, concrete filled bollards, high security barrier arm gates, and chain link security fencing to protect the buildings from vehicular assaults. The design also included standard and heavy duty asphalt pavement and concrete pavement sections. Pavement and curbing underdrain systems were utilized in conjunction with the design of the site closed storm system and stormwater management facility to extend the expected life of the pavement sections. Additional pavement design work included striping, handicap ramps, handicap signage, and concrete dumpster pad with masonry enclosure and access gate.

 

Aultman Woodlawn Hospice

Aultman Woodlawn Hospice
Canton, Ohio


AultmanWoodlawnHospice1SBM is currently designing the Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing systems of this extended care hospice facility. This building will be designed to a LEED™ Silver certification level. Some of the sustainable features this building will have are a variable refrigerant flow (VRF) HVAC system, low\no flow plumbing fixtures, and full building commissioning. Special attention is being paid to other sustainable features of the building even though they may not be contributing to LEED points. The building will be approximately 24,000 square feet and will house 12 patient beds. Scheeser Buckley Mayfield will be performing the fundamental prerequisite LEED Commissioning for this project. Electrically, the LEED certification puts a large emphasis on lighting efficiency, automatic lighting shut-off, and light pollution. Special effort was taken to select Luminaires that would compliment the styling of the architecture, but not compromise the energy goals of the project. The lighting control system employs use of occupancy sensors and digital lighting controls for all non-healthcare and non-24/7 spaces to give the owner flexibility in building schedules and to save energy when spaces are unoccupied. Due to frequent power outages at this site, an emergency generator system was designed to serve 100% of the building power during power outage conditions.

St. Elizabeth Heath Center Urology

St. Elizabeth Heath Center Urology
Youngstown, Ohio


Scheeser Buckley Mayfield designed the mechanical, plumbing, and fire protection systems for a new 13,400 sq ft medical office building containing various exam rooms, waiting rooms, nurse stations, CT Scanner, and a Linear Accelerator. The project is a LEED Silver Project. The plumbing systems utilize low flow faucets, showerheads, toilets, and urinals to reduce water consumption. The HVAC systems utilize multiple packaged rooftop air handling units with digital scroll compressors and high efficiency condensing boilers to reduce energy consumption. The air systems are variable air volume using heating water from the boilers to provide heating and maintain minimum airflow requirements. Occupancy sensors are tied into the building automation system to reduce airflow during unoccupied periods of time. Carbon dioxide sensors are installed in highly occupied areas to control outdoor airflow to maintain minimum ventilation requirements.
